Survivors will return

14 October 2017

As the November release of Survivors Series Seven comes closer, we look ahead to this tale of a future suffering from a global pandemic.

Imagine a world where the majority of the population of the human race is killed in a worldwide sickness. The Big Finish Survivors series, which started over three years ago, continues to build on a world which tests the characters at every turn.

The world has ended. The ‘Death’ pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population.

The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society – to create a new future.

But with no cities, no laws, no technology, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best…

Survivors is based on an original concept and characters from the 1975 television series by Terry Nation (creator of the Daleks and Blake’s 7). The show ran for three seasons and was known to be as thought-provoking and character-driven as it was terrifying.

The adventures continue on audio from Big Finish, who were lucky to have actors Carolyn Seymour, Ian McCulloch and Lucy Fleming reprising their TV roles and taking part in several of the series. Series Seven continues the adventures, with four new episodes available in November.

7.1 Journey’s End by Roland Moore

Alone and resolute, a mother has spent the years since the ‘Death’ searching for her son. She is closing in on her final lead. One last hope to find Peter. But for Abby Grant, the worst possible thing might be to find what she is looking for…

7.2 Legacy by Simon Clark

Greg Preston is dead. But the work he did in forging his foundation, in bringing communities together, lives on. When she and Ruth encounter those whose lives he touched, Jenny Richards is forced to remember how the man she loved abandoned her. But when she meets a common enemy, can she find the strength to make a stand?

7.3 Old Friends by Matt Fitton

Ruth Anderson and Evelyn Piper unite on a mission of mercy. An old friend is in trouble and in the path of dangerous forces. Jackie Burchell could reveal secrets that change lives. But first, she must find her own way back. When things are at their worst, it’s old friends who keep you going.

7.4 Reconnection by Christopher Hatherall

As Jenny continues her plan to restore electricity across the country, she meets someone she never thought she’d see again – but it’s a very different Abby Grant to the one who left the Grange. Not everyone is in favour of Jenny’s project, and the women find danger in a remote power station. It may be too late for them to reconnect…
